About Joshua

Hi there! I am currently working as a teaching assistant for a biochemistry class at Hunter College. In that role, I've taught chemistry and biology to college students for the past two years. I also tutor math students from the Thomas Hunter Honors program, as well as provide MCAT tutoring, and CPR (BLS and ACLS) training to nursing students and healthcare professinals. Last January I even traveled to Ecuador for a month to teach health and hygiene to a high school class, in Spanish!

I am a firm believer in the saying "if you give a person a fish, you feed them for a day...if you teach a person to fish, you feed them for life." In that regard, I love teaching people to teach themselves. My perfect client is one to whom I can teach the necessary skills so they can continue learning after tutoring ends. There is nothing more rewarding than seeing a student gain confidence and achieve independence from their tutor. If you work with me, I will do my absolute best to make sure this happens (as well as any other goals we set along the way)!

I have taken a full premedical curriculum and have gotten a letter grade of an A in each class. Just for good measure, they are:

Biology (2 semesters)
Biochemistry (2 semesters)
Chemistry (2 semesters)
Organic Chemistry (2 semesters)
Physics (2 semesters)
Calculus (2 semesters)
Statistics (1 semester)

Feel free to shoot me a message! I typically respond within 24 hours, if not sooner. I will gladly discuss any questions or concerns you might have, no commitment necessary.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Organic Chemistry

I have taken two semesters of Organic Chemistry (A+ and A) as well as two semesters of Organic Chemistry Lab (A+ and A). I am also a teaching assistant for a Biochemistry class that requires a solid foundation in Organic chemistry. Also, one of my medical school recommendations was from my Organic Chemistry professor. These were all taken at CUNY Hunter College, which has a respected pre-med program. Additionally, I am the official Biochemistry tutor for the Thomas Hunter Honors Program at Hunter College, and have been tutoring students in the subject for over a year.
